Family announce death of actor Tony Booth, star of Till Death Us Do Part
Booth, 85, who was the father of Cherie Blair, died on Monday night.
He was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2004 and had also suffered heart problems.
A statement released on behalf of his wife Steph Booth said: “It is with sadness we announce the death of Antony Booth, actor and political campaigner.
“Tony passed away late last night with close family members in attendance.
“The family ask for their privacy to be respected at this time.”
Booth’s character in the hugely popular sitcom reflected his own left-wing political beliefs.
